MEA and Shanghai[edit]

Hello. A source has been provided for MEA. As for Shanghai Airlines, the fact that it is a subsidiary of another airline does not mean that it will not gain full membership. KLM is also a subsidiary and yet is a full member. Thus, as no source indicate that it will be an affiliate, we have to consider it as a future full member.

http://www.skyteam.com/news/headlines/20101101.html here is your source. I quote: "Shanghai Airlines today announced it will become part of SkyTeam under the wings of parent company China Eastern, which is already in the process of joining the alliance in 2011."

Hence: China Eastern Airlines will become a SkyTeam member and Shanghai Airlines will also JOIN SkyTeam as part of China Eastern Airlines! Schalkcity (talk) 23:29, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Not sure about what it really means. In fact, we should say we still don't know how it will go. Thierry Caro (talk) 23:33, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
By the way, I don't get what is your problem with MEA.~It is on their website. Thierry Caro (talk) 23:34, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
As for MEA, I quote from their website: "During the meeting, Mr. El Hout confirmed that the Board of Middle East Airlines has approved his proposition that MEA should officially plan to become a Full member of Skyteam Global Alliance.

Mr. Pierre-Henry Gourgeon received this information with great pleasure and committed that Air France would sponsor and support Middle East Airlines in this endeavour." So I rest my case, MEA should officially plan to become a Full member --> so NOTHING is yet official! So stop adding MEA. And also for the Shanghai Airlines case, I already quoted before from the SkyTeam website. Becoming part of SkyTeam under the parents of another company explicitly means that China Eastern will become a member and Shanghai Airlines will become an affiliate.

Info from the SkyTeam media department:
"Thank you for contacting SkyTeam.
Shanghai airlines will be an affiliate member."
So, Shanghai Airlines will join as an AFFILIATE MEMBER! So stop adding Shanghai Airlines as a future member, because it will not be a future full member. Just as BritAir, Regional, CityJet and KLM Cityhopper are affiliate members of Air France and KLM. Schalkcity (talk) 23:47, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
